Few days ago, the health commissioner’s in a tweet said one of the Dubai returnees had died of Covid-19 complications.

Prof Akin Abayomi revealed that it’s been confirmed that the Dubai returnee did not die from Coronavirus. 

He further disclosed that they were led to believing the man might have contracted Coronavirus, following the sudden nature of his demise. 

Read his tweet below;

I hereby inform the general public that the Nigerian who recently returned from Dubai as part of a group of returnees who were placed in a #COVID19 isolation program in lekki, developed complications and was transferred to one of our facilities where he died.

Because of the sudden nature of his demise and without any prior knowledge of his multiple preexisting conditions it was presumed to be a #COVID19 related death pending confirmation by #COVID19 Gold standard test.

This presumptive attribution is a precaution to ensure the safe clinical management of the patient and subsequent handling of the corpse.

The definitive #COVID19 gold standard test has turned out to be negative for the #COVID19 infection and his death is no longer considered to have been attributable to #COVID19
